Well what a treat this was, first off, its an adult oriented B&B which I think is great, a place for the adults to be adults! The Chef and his lovely wife were great hosts, from the moment we were making the reservations, to walking in the front door, through till we departed. We learned of this beauty when my cousin and I attend a culinary clinic in Victoria by Chef Angelo. We were so impressed with his culinary talents that we researched Cooper's Cove and booked a weekend get away with our spouses.
We enjoyed this amazingly clean and professional home for 2 days, we were greeted with a nice gift of home made truffles and some amazing sherry in our room. The hosts are a wealth of knowledge and can advise you of the area whether it be for food, sites, or just general info. The property has great views, access to a trail along the water, a hot tub on the deck, or if you just want to relax have a seat under the grapes vines in the garden.
Onto the food, I can honestly say Chef Angelo's creations are nothing short of Amazing, from the breakfasts to our five course dinner, everything prepared with love and respect, and the fresh ingredients making it all the more flavorful.
We have already talked about our next visit later this year, for the price you can not beat this weekend getaway, make sure you take the afternoon cooking class, its filled with learning simple yet very useful techniques, lots of laughs and most of all great food!
Chef Angelo works with everyone, no matter what your skill level is, you will truly appreciate this opportunity, and be sure to walk away with a copy of his cook book!!!
